    I don’t care if they can make my breakfast, I could never bring myself to spend that much money for a phone.

    Yep it's way too much for a phone.

    My husbsnd just spent $700 on a used mustang for a project car. It runs and came with 4 brand new tires. He considered an iPhone but said it would be foolish to pay that much for a phone so he got the car instead

    It's foolish to pay a decent price for a highly advanced piece of technology in your pocket? I mean, you use it probably more than any other 'expensive' device you may own or would want.

    If you figure the hours per use by costs, it doesn't seem such a 'foolish' amount of money.

    With the prices of the new iPhones its absolutely foolish. If someone wants to spend that much its their choice but it doesn't seem worth it to me.

    Rumors were that the Xs would be cheaper than last year's X. That turned out wrong.

    At least pessimists thinking the new phone wouldn't have B71 were wrong.

    I don't recall seeing predictions for dual SIM mode (even if 1 is eSIM) for the US market. In theory, I could sell both my iPhones and buy the Xs once the eSIM support is available in the US. But probably not.

    My only current issue with my X is battery life when I go on vacation. Frequent use of the camera, especially in areas with poor cell coverage, drains the battery in well less than a day.
    iPhone X on ATT Prepaid. Backup iPhone 7+ on inexpensive Verizon MVNO plan. Hopefully covers me in the continental US for phone usage. Cheaper than a single unlimited plan on ATT or Verizon or T-Mobile.

    I get that - many folks are ok with a Moto E series phone that goes on sale for $50 and they call it a day. They use it a lot and love it and are happy.

    Others require a lot of their phone or really enjoy or even need top specs. Spending $1,000 on a device you use throughout every day for hours isn't really insane if you put it over the 2 years you might keep it. I see people spend $45,000 on a new car every 3 years and honestly the underlying majority of the technology in a car is 100+ years old. Cell phones are much more modern in many ways.

    That might be true if the IPhone was something special or did something special. In 2018 it does not.

    The car analogy is on point: you could buy an economy car and get from point A to point B the same way as if you’d bought a luxury car. But people still spend on the luxury car. Same with the iPhone, if the phone will be used daily and you can afford it get it. The company is worth over one trillion so people are buying.

    The advanced piece of technology doesn’t really advance that much from one model to the next. Yes, they’ll be a few new bands and maybe a better camera or longer battery life but I can’t see the cost for the marginal gains from year to year. It’s more vanity than anything else, and that’s fine. Whatever makes one happy.

    Cars come with other hidden recurring costs, like gas, parts/maintenance, insurance, registration, and in other situations like shipping, parking, storage, fines, towing/impound and customs so you end up paying a lot more than than $700. It really depends what your hobbies are, since I can say the same for a used Mustang; not everybody will be interested in or has the capability to work on a "project car". Then you have people who buy the project car and it ends up sitting in the garage because they are too busy with other things or it sucks up lots of money.

    Then you also have people who buy $45,000 cars who aren't prepared to pay for the recurring costs or end up with pieces of junk which spends more time at mechanic than on the road...

    I too, can buy a used Mustang for $700 for a project, but my competency in finding parts and making it work together is limited. And, more likely than not, it will collect dust in States. Buying the car is the easy part.

    Some people have the new iPhone every year plan and some like me buy every 2 years and pass down old phone to kids.

    It is the only one that works. I would rather use an iPhone 4s than the Samsung Note 9. Because the android phone takes hours of tinkering to get it somewhat usable and then it still does not work right... I use both and Android is vastly inferior while costing the same absurd amount of money.
